. >> it is something that i don't understand. people spoke about hillary clinton when she was running for office and when she was first lady. one of the things that seems to be a little bit different here with regard to people talking about the high school coach that you talked about referred to the first lady as michelle fat butt obama. and what conservative radio host rush limbaugh has referred to her on one more than one occasion as michelle my butt obama. what we believe is beautiful or not beautiful just because certainly people feel that a lot of what black women look is not something that they consider is beauty, and in the african-american community we see all of us as beautiful regardless of how we look, and its disconcerting that it's okay to say these things about the first lady of the united states. who by the way she's not over weight. look at the pieces written by my colleagues. >> jennifer: she's totally beautiful. she's not the anorexic stick that fashion magazines tout as ideal, due do not think that it makes her a better and powerful role model for young women. >> absolutely. o

[ laughter ] i remember i was really excited to get my own talk show. then i found out roger ailes had one. come on, folks what's next? cooking with ira magaziner. >> bill: ira magaziner was hillary clinton's healthcare adviser at the time. he was the head of the hillary clinton task force. cindy borin, one of our favorites coming in studio, the sports blogger fore"the washington post" to talk about the oscar pistorius trial. we're also going to talk to one of the leaders of this firm called mandian
held today between hillary clinton and governor chris christie, 49% would vote for clinton, while 45 would vote for christie. >> hillary clinton if she wants to run will be the next president of the united states. the question is will she run? and she's attracting a new generation of people particularly women who are so excited about the prospects of having a woman president. we believe that she is the one. so as i said her before on the show, hilary if you are watching, run. >> michael: a lot of people were saying it. i think the excitement over the first woman president would be obviously multiplyied. but let's say she doesn't run, who would be the standard barer to that? >> you have to go out there and make your mark. and on that point i brought you a little something -- >> michael: is this older -- >> this is maker's mark classic. >> michael: okay. >> when i bout it at a liquor store this afternoon, the owner new the whole story, be it's not only a lesson for mitch mcconnell but for all people running, you have to know your brand. they had a perfectly good br

in benghazi. panetta testified. then it was we want to hear from secretary clinton. senator clinton did testify. then it was a request put out to the white house tuesday asking for specific information about where the president was and was doing on september 11, 2012 after the raid in benghazi. now, the white house pointed out that all this information is public record, that as this was happening in realtime, we were learning about secretary clinton at the secretary's request was speaking to labor yes. the following day the president himself called the president of libya. senators were still insisting that the white house put to them in writing this very same question. they got that this morning. they said their concerns are satisfied. as we know, there are other senators looking for more information. cenk: one last thing here. look, you know first of all hagel has nothing to do with benghazi. he wasn't in the government. it's abstored begin with on that note. again, i look for what's their real motivation, now, one thing which is what they say then there's a second thing, what they're
senators, what you hear is please follow the hillary clinton model this notion she came in and had star power and laid low and didn't do very much, same thing for barack obama in the u.s. senate. so the expectation, if not the mandate for liberal senators is follow this employed he will that says sit down and shut up. the encouraging thing about elizabeth warren is she is saying i'm going to play rules is i am here as a senator. i campaigned on these things. shies effectively say i go made promises to voters about what i would stand up for and the serious thing to do is to stand up for those things and fulfill those pledges when i'm in office. cenk: i think part of what that executive is saying is hales know your role. your roam as a democratic is to pretend to be progressive during the elections but once the election is over, your role is to work for us, the financial executives. secondly, the democrats are paid to shut up and the republicans paid to run wild. that's how we get the imbalance policy that we winds up getting not political results in terms of who wins, but policy results.
that affect walmart i would say no. >> cenk: hillary clinton was on walmart's board of directors for six years, too. do you think she should not have been secretary of state? >> i think there is a whole range of issues that one should consider in terms of clinton's record, but i think it was appropriate that her connection and others' connections to walmart became an issue in the primary. we saw in 2008 prominent democratic party officials speaking out about walmart. we have not seen in recent months since the strikes that took place on black friday or before very many democrats and certainly nobody at the top of the party speaking up about these strikes or speaking up about this challenge to the dominant employer in the united states at the moment. i think the fact that hillary clinton served in a role where she helped to improve walmart's image. she helped walmart get over its imagine as a white-male company is something that she should have been asked to answer for much more. at the time she suggested changes, but she didn't speak up about labor issues in walmart, and something she should h
on bengahzi. he was directing the secretary of state at the time hillary clinton to appeal for help for the libyan government that obama himself called the next day to ask for help with the investigation and the rest of it. graham is up for re-election in 2014, and he has been successful pressing the bengahzi story for as much as possible. again that's what his interest and concern is. he wants to go back to home state voters and say i stuck it to the president on this. i consider it to be as bad as watergate, and so he has no incentive whatsoever to stop doing that until the very last minute. that hasn't approached yet. >> michael: now, it's worth pointing out not only is graham up for re-election but it looks like he's going to get a primary as well. to see as right of the president as he possibly can seems like a good path for him to take. let's go to the president. what does this bode for the president's second term if he has this much trouble getting his nominees past of the democratic senate. >> it's funny you ask this. this all is playing out the same week that the president
like newt gringrich helping president clinton out of the hole. they're playing offense poorly. i know what we'll do. we'll run the playbook that played out a couple of decades ago, well it's not going to work. >> john: there was obama sequester tag hashtag is he right? who is going to win the political fight on this? have the republicans succeeded in branding this as obama's failure? >> my sense is no. the republicans are going to get the blame for this. the question is what is the "this"? are people going to be able to make the connection between a slow diminishment of services. you know, we won't recognize the fact that the nih is going to cut out grants for new scientists for years theoretically. it may not be something that we're ever going to be aware of unless it's something that directly impacts you. i think it will be difficult. but over time this will impact the economy. the president at the very least is doing a good job pointing to the republicans and saying it's their fault. the real question is does the american public really absorb what it is that they're blaming the rep
clinton? i will say that president bush after 9-11 sort of had cart blanch he controlled the house and the senate and the democrats were much more given to supporting his agenda following that crisis and attack on our nation. so is it really that unprecedented or does seem like over the last three administrations, it is okay as long as you give us, the republicans, what we want? >> it's not totally unprecedented. what's pretty clear is this particular congress, particularly coming after the last round of redistricting and with the rise of the tea party and the conservative branch of the republican party this is conservative with republicans pretty far to the right. democrats who frankly in many cases, particularly in the house are pretty far to the left. >> john: well, rick, it is true. it is nice to remember we do have democrats who are liberal in the house. is this another taste of the republican party doubling down on obstructionism? the policy that does not work for them in 2012? >> i don't think they know what else to do. look, we have such a weird dynamic now. elections today

for that to happen, they couldn't get it to stop. >> hillary clinton is barely moved out of the state department and she's already on to her next project. >> running for president. >> former secretary of state has joined an agency and will start giving paid speeches. just like everyone in washington does. while she's expected to earn over six figures per speech, she will reportedly not charge for speeches for causes she supports and will donate a lot of her speaking fees to charity. >> bill: all i have to say is as one who is a paid speaker myself, hillary clinton welcome to the club. the water's fine. i want everybody out there looking for a speaker if you can't afford hillary -- i come cheap. >> you don't charge six figures? >> bill: no. i'll take high-fives. >> speaking of six figures the bomber jacket that john f. kennedy wore while flying on air force i sold for big money. the presidential jacket with the presidential seal was expected to earn no more than $40,000 but bidding over the weekend purchase pushed the price to $655,000. it was part of a collection by his long-time aide who passed

of it but i have the same concerns. it is something like the legacy that bill clinton had with welfare reform. something that he was brought of. and i see barack obama leaning that way. but what david was talking about politics earlier. this was politics saying to the democratic party. i'm willing to give on medicare and reforming medicare, now it's up to you to talk to me. if it doesn't happen, whatever doesn't happen he can blame on the republicans. i wasn't happy hearing that either, i'm curious if it was more political play than policy he was putting out this. >> they said they will not be raising the medicare eligibility age, but they is it mention they might play with the cpi which would be a you had on social security. michael, your point on bill clinton and his legacy of welfare reform was one i hadn't considered. that is a great point. president obama loves to copy examples of what he thinks is great administration, the clinton administration and as a progressive i'm not happy about that. again i want to point--throw it out to everybody here and discuss the idea of will there be any

president bill clinton got his start in politics in 1967 as an intern to senator william fall bright who filibustered the civil rights act as well as the 1965. ah-ha. >> why do they have to reach 30, 40 years in the past to get you? >> stephanie: look at them. they're cheating on me. also on newsbusters randi rhodes republicans are mess heads who want to tank our economy. how dare her. she's stealing my press!

today. in fact former president bill clinton today this afternoon that some efforts to disenfranchise voters are even more determined today than 40 years ago. and let's look at a few of the darkest example from the sunshine state. florida cut early voting the sunday before the election this year, and one consultant explained why. quote . . . yes, he really did say that. not only were there fewer days to vote, but there were fewer polling stations in minority a neighbors. blacks and hispanics in florida waited nearly twice as long to vote as whites did. the orlando sental reported that nearly 200,000 voters gave up in frustration without voting. and then the voter id laws. the only thing that stopped states like alabama and georgia from follow the lead was, yeah you guessed it the voting right's act. republican governors of many states filed a brief arguing the act is unconstitutional because it kept them from implementing voter id laws. that's what it is supposed to do. and that in a nutshell is why we still need it today. as part of our the march goes on series i'
whew, disastrous, not only did clinton clean his clock but so did george w. bush and ronald reagan. he preserved less land for public use than george w. bush. of course, obama likes to break bush's record and go further right, and he did in this case as well and opened up a tremendous amount of land to drill on. i want to bring in a couple of experts, michael shure our political correspondent, and then mark flogl with greenpeace research unit. thank you for joining us. i want to ask you about sally jewel's record. it seems to me that it's a mixed bag. she worked for an oil company and then worked as as a banker, which is a prerequisite if you work in the obama administration. she seems like a conservation conservationist. >> she worked for mobile 30 years ago. that was an entry level position. the people she'll deal with in her new position if she's confirmed is a much different kettle of fish. she'll come under pressure to open up public land for oil coal all the fossil fuel industries. >> cenk: do we have an indication of how she's going to react to that? are you in favor or oppose t
the brennamans, the clappers, the hillary clinton's you can't get through the bob gates and leon panettas and penetrate that bubble and say do you understand what you're doing both to american civil liberties and rest of the world's appreciation with america with these increased drone strikes that seem to have an endless visit at a for future. >> that brings up a bunch of questions. first, do you think president obama is in that bubble that colonel wilkerson is talking about? >> it seems to be. i can tell you, i was extraordinary disappointed. i campaigned for president obama and voted for him again this time, because he was the lesser of the two evils it seemed. with president bush, you could look at him and say he doesn't know any better. president obama knows better, but despite his losty rhetoric about restoring america's reputation and upholding the rule of law there's been little effort in that reward. >> john brennan was aware of the c.i.a. program. president obama wanted him to oh be head right away. he loved this had guy from the get go. but every time brennan was asked, oh, my g
lee and sheila jackson lee a notorious aisle hog. she has made face with every president since clinton. and if representatives want to secure prime seating they have to stay there the entire time. it's like waiting in line for the new iphone. no bathroom breaks for you congressmen. we know who the guest of honor are, but we don't know which cabinet member will be honored with the order to stay away tonight. god for bid if something happened at the capitol tonight we would be without legislative and judicial branch of government. so one member is ordered to stay away so he or she could lead the country if anything should happen. who is most suited, defense state or justice. since 1984 the secretaries of agriculture and interior have been designated the survivor six times each. commerce has had four designees. the only person to be designated twice is evans. we would only survive by selling crops grown on public land or screw it we're on our own. a quick break and then we'll get to brett erlich. stick around. people with sore throats have something new to say. ahh ! mmm ! ahh ! finally

nixon. >> and bill clinton balanced the budget. that's an important reality. >> john: and it's great to talk to a man who was instrumental of that. robert reich author of "beyond outrage" and a man i hope runs for president so i can campaign for him, thank you sir, for your time tonight. >> good night. >> john: as i mentioned earlier in the program gone issues will play a strong role, and they are trying to pressure congress to listen to voters. gabby giffords had this to say in a new ad released by her political action committee. >> we have a problem. where we shop. where we pray. where our children go to school. but there are solutions. we can agree on even gun owners like us. take it from me. congress must act. let's get this done. >> john: and voters in some unlikely places agree it's time to get something done on guns. this is part of an ad that is aimed directly at kentucky senator and minority leader mitch mcconnell. >> the guns meant for war could be used on civilians and children. as a gun owner and veteran i support the plan to ban assault weapons and keep guns out of the w
for a long time. they've known each other back this the clinton days when gene sperling was a prominent white house budget official. i don't think so. i don't think so. i know gene sperling. conspiracy of all he's 5'6" or 5'7". he's not going to bring it at you that way. he's clearly saying you would regret this in terms of your future reputation as a journalist. he's right. woodward got that wrong and that's really what can't be lost here. when woodward said that obama moved the goal post, he's dead wrong and doesn't understand the situation. >> michael: explain that. explain what he's wrong there in terms of the facts. major news outlets are not reporting the facts that were "r" wrong. what are they? >> it's a little bit technical but i'll try. i guess woodward's understanding of the sequestration was that as you recall this legislation called for the creation of a super committee right? the congressional super committee, six from each party to get together and to try to come up with some cuts. and if they didn't come up with some cuts, then these sequestration cuts would kick in--excuse me

clinton unresolved yet is the issue of the keystone pipeline. we know that in the senate, john kerry has been a big champion of doing something about climate change. he's raised this issue. he's a true believer. he's been the leader of that and the united states senate hasn't been able to get legislation passed. what does this portend for him as secretary of state when the keystone pipeline comes to his desk for approval? >> well, as you say he has been one of the great champions of climate action and at the hearing, at the senate confirmation hearing, he said, you know, i would respectfully say to you that climate change is not something to be feared in response to. it is to be feared if we don't. i will be a passionate advocate on this, not based on ideology but based on facts and science. the keystone pipeline, you know, for your listeners is a pipeline that will enable a massive expansion of one of the dirtiest pools of carbon on the planet which is the mucky star sands of canada which they want to ship over here so that we'll refine it. it is, you know, an expansion of carbon pollut
